Finnish food has always had its roots in the offerings of our clean and pristine land. Game, fish, mushrooms, berries, and root vegetables are characteristic of our cuisine, as are ingredients produced locally with respect for nature.
The healthy and tasty flavours of this rich tradition are available at Helsinki Airport year-round. We have picked a few tasters for you, representing quality Finnish foodstuffs. Take a bite – you won't be disappointed!
